MORE INFO: MVD Audio catalog page
The long-awaited compilation benefit album is out!
It’s a financial benefit for Lyn Ulbricht, mother of Ross Ulbricht of the Silk Road. (He’s in prison for 2 life terms for running a website.)
Since Ross Ulbricht’s arrest, Lyn Ulbricht has dedicated her life to tirelessly advocating for Ross on the outside. She moved across the country to be able to visit him regularly. Lyn even suffered a heart attack from the stress of Ross’ trial.
She does interviews and even travels to give talks – about Ross in particular and the futility of the drug war in general. She runs the site devoted to Ross, FreeRoss.org.
Help Lyn out and get some great music at the same time. And please share this post with your friends. This is the first-ever benefit for Lyn Ulbricht.

Frank93688755 sez :Can’t get Microtonal Freedom MP3 in Australia. Is this a marketing thing?
Said I’ll pay $50 but Amazon and Qobuz don’t like where I live. IHeart Radio want me to listen to the whole lot – 1 at a time – for free – nowhere to pay.
Hoping you can get back to me with a solution.
Signed: he with the floofed DOOM.
emailed you with questions for more info.
Donation sent, Bipping along to riffs, Thanks Bippy!
It’d be cool to have the lyrics for these posted somewhere. Maybe the artists could post them somewhere?
